Meet Our Team
A team that helps you go an extra SMILE
Dr. Ronald Nazon, Dental Surgeon
Dr. Nazon was born in Haiti and moved to Canada as a child. He graduated from McGill University with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1987. He left his beloved Montréal, and after 5 years of associateship, he opened his first office at College and Augusta. Later on, in 1995, he opened the present office on Augusta Avenue under the name United Smiles of Kensington. The reason why he chose "united" was the belief that Toronto - being a multicultural city - is actually reflected in his very own office.
So, the dental office became multicultural and multilingual. In addition to that, his belief was always that as a dentist, it is necessary to help people in need, which led him to accept patients on social services, as well as do pro-bono work for battered women. Later on, as part of his philosophy, he and his team started dental missions to Haiti, where the services provided were performing dental hygiene, restorative, extractions as well as handing out medical supplies; clothing, toys, toothbrushes, and dental floss.
Dr. Nazon also mentored numerous students that later became dentists after shadowing him. He is fluent in 4 languages; English, French, Creole, and Spanish and has working proficiency in Portuguese. Aside from dentistry, Dr. Nazon enjoys traveling and considers Mexico to be his second home after Kensington Market. When hiring his team of doctors and staff, he has made sure that everyone in the practice always feels accepted and right at home.
"We run this place as a family, not as a corporation." and he likes to keep it that way.
Dr. Ziad El Achhab, Dental Surgeon
Known for his patient character, Dr. Ziad focuses on providing comfort and detailed explanation to all of his patients. He is an active member of the RCDSO and ODA since 2012. Dr. Ziad grew up in Beirut, Lebanon, a vibrant city on the Mediterranean shores. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at St. Joseph’s University in 2003.
After practicing dentistry in Beirut for 6 years, Dr. Ziad decided to move to Kuwait City in 2008 and has enjoyed serving the diverse population of the gulf for over 8 years. His experience there has progressed over a variety of different expertise such as cosmetics, prosthodontics and endodontics. Dr. Ziad feels particularly blessed to be working with Smiles of Kensington Dental since 2019 as the practice shares his philosophy in dealing with patients’ needs.
